“Tai Chi is my dependable best friend for maintaining health and balance.  After 50 years of teaching and practicing, I understand and appreciate the unity of body/mind/spirit."

“I love the powerful, yet gentle way Tai Chi leads me to deal with stress through relaxation and meditative-like movements.  As a naturopathic doctor, I receive tremendous physical, emotional and mental health benefits, including improved balance, mood, and energy flow."

“Tai Chi continues to be a go-to source for physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual support in my life.  And transmitting those gifts to our students makes me very happy."

Tai Chi Benefits

Tai Chi Chuan is an ancient Chinese exercise that promotes health and well-being.  As you move through a series of postures at a slow and even pace, your body relaxes and your mind and emotions become calm. Tai Chi is gentle enough for anyone to enjoy, no matter the age. Practicing Tai Chi increases circulation, improves balance and posture, reduces stress, and increases vitality.  It combines meditation, movement and breath awareness.   Tai Chi is both a cardiovascular and weight-bearing exercise.
